I recently purchased this shaver and was pleasantly suprised by the closeness of the shave, although I did have to press in quite hard to reach some of the shorter hairs, I don't believe an electric shaver will ever get as close as a wet shave with a razor, however for ease of use when you can't be bothered with a wet shave it's ideal. The appearance is also nice, with a on/off button that lights up when pressed and battery full/empty lights. The pop up sideburn trimmer is ok although it seems a touch flimsy, and the release button is maybe too close to the blades for comfort, but all things considered I'm pleased and don't regret buying it.

First off id like to mention that this is my first ever electric razor, i was sick and tired of a wet shave and cutting myself with those disposable things just befor i went out, HATED IT!!.. However bearing in mind we all have different skin types and rate of whisker growth id also mention that my skin is sensitive and i can get away with having a shave every 2 days maximum.. The first point of this razor is basicaly it does the job down to a tee, i was very happy and surprised from first use of an electric shaver that its alot quicker and just as good as a wet shave, unless your a scientist and concerned about fraction of millimeter's belive me noone would notice the difference ie boss at work etc.. its now great that my skin is no longer blotchy looking after a shave and that the cuts from a wet shave have now gone forever, great stuff. All in all it looks great (the same as the picture) and certainly does the job. Well Happy.

I did my homework - it's a Which? Best Buy, the reviews are good on Amazon so thought, for the money, I cant' go wrong. Yes, it's a good design, pretty solid, nice colours...etc. etc..BUT what's the shave like. Simply put, frustrating. The motor seems very slow compared to other electric shavers I've owned - the closeness of the shave is fine, but it's like pulling teeth. In the morning I don't want to spend an age shaving, and you will with this machine - It's going back to Amazon

regards

Vickys husband !

A very smooth fast shave every time compared to my old HQ7830 model,
It doesnt feel as robust as the old one but if if gives me as good a service I will be more than pleased.

I used to own a philips shaver a few years ago, and never really got on with it. It clogged up, was difficult to clean, looked ugly, and didn't actually shave very well. Recently though I started to get fed up with wet shaving, and decided to give electrical razors another go.

This shaver is excellent. The 'formula one' branding is a little cheesey and adolescent, but it's quite understated and not trying too hard. Actually the white and black colours of the Williams team look nice and clean and clinical on this product, and don't look as out of place in the bathroom as perhaps a ferrari red shaver might have done. The logos are discreet.

In use, the shaver doesn't feel as powerful as my original philips one. It's not buzzing away in my hand like a garden strimmer and at first I mistook this for poor performance. It's actually that the motors are far more efficient than previous models. The are very effective and they smooth and quiet motor doesn't vibrate your face into pins and needles. It cuts close and smooth.

It's very very easy to clean. Press a catch on the underside and the cutting head flips back. After each shave you can rinse the entire cutting mechanisim under the hot tap which is a brilliant way to keep it clean and the shaver working effectively. Occasionally the entire head detaches itself from the rest of the body, which is a bit disconcerting the first time it happens, but I found this made it easier to clean and it's easy to reattach.

I'm delighted with this shaver. I've been using it for 6 months now, and it still cuts close and smooth and is as effective as the day I bought it. A good price too, and highly recomended.

It is my first shaver, found it very easy to use, and the shave was really fast and close. I am happy with the build quality as well.

The only issue is that it came with the continental plug, that's bad, because even though the converters are not too expensive, they are really bulky!

I have just changed from my older phililps shaver to this HQ7290 one. First of all i got a real bargain from Amazon at £29 including delivery, the same model in Argos is almost £90!. It has a nice feel and appearance and is very quite when running, the shave is good and close, the things i like most about it are the 1 hr charging time and the easy cleaning of the heads using water. Overall i would certainly recommend this.

Contrary to Big Daddys review my Philips is as quiet as a mouse and all I can say is Dave you got a duff one if yours is making that much noise, you can hardly hear it with its super quiet motor..Way quieter than my old Philips rechargeable which I had for over 6 years until I saw this and got it for peanuts instead of the £90+ price tag it is everywhere else..

Having now owned this Philips rechargeable Shaver around 4 weeks I think its time for the review on it..

Shave is good and close but not as good as a Razor but then you wouldn't expect it to be would you, this does a fine job of collecting and cutting all length hairs in all directions even under the neck area and under the nose creases..
It also has a built in pop up trimmer for sideburns and eyebrows and this does a great job at keeping the bushy brows under control, my only gripe is that it don't come with an adaptor for the plug but you can't have everything, found one in a local bargain store for 50p so I'm happy..

You can wash this model under the tap aswell which is just brilliant and saves me ages having to brush my last one out every other shave which was a chore to be honest, but this is clean in under 30 seconds and just leave it open to dry out naturally in the air.

All in all for the price I paid I'm made up..Well worth double the price and more I just hope it gives me as much trouble free shaving as my old Philips has..
